Top law firm seeks to hire a Senior English Qualified Solicitor specialising in international arbitration and global dispute resolution matters and acting largely for CIS clients.

Our client is particularly well known for its high profile Russian/CIS practice, and its London and Moscow offices are involved in most of the cutting edge transactions and contentious matters affecting business in the region. 

It is now seeking to bring a top quality senior English qualified litigator on board in a 'partner designate' role, initially to be based in Moscow for 6 -12 months, and later to return to London on a permanent basis.  With a particular focus on shareholder disputes, your role will involve managing high value and complex cross-border commercial disputes in the English High Court and international arbitration in the full range of arbitral forums including the LCIA.

Your profile as a lawyer should be as follows:

  • Excellent academics;
  • English qualified Solicitor;
  • From 5-8 years' post qualified dispute resolution experience with a top international law firm in London;
  • Interest in/prior experience in CIS focused disputes;
  • Russian language skills a plus (but not obligatory);
  • Willingness to spend time in Moscow when needed;
  • Partnership aspirations.

On offer is a challenging career opportunity for a 'star' UK qualified lawyer with partnership aspirations to make his/her name in taking a leadership role in managing the Russian/CIS Dispute Resolution Practice of a dynamic and high profile firm in London.
